Recent Review: I contacted three asphalt driveway contractors from Angie’s list to get estimates to work on my asphalt driveway. I picked M Carroll to do the job because they worked harder than the other two companies to get my business. I initially contacted them on Thursday afternoon and the owner, Matt, came by my home a couple of hours later to personally evaluate my driveway and give me estimates for both laying down a asphalt cover and for applying chip seal on top of the old asphalt. He also provided a copy of a work order that listed listed terms & conditions and warranty details for the contract. After I had received some estimates from other companies, I emailed some questions to Matt about chip seal paving and he responded quickly by phone to discuss them with me. Aware that I was entertaining several offers, he agreed to both lower his price and schedule the work immediately in order to beat the other contractors. The very next morning he showed-up at my house about an hour ahead of schedule with a crew of about 7 people. The crew immediately got to work and to my eye they looked liked they had done this about a million times. Everybody seemed to know their jobs, they worked efficiently and acted professionally (nobody stood around idle and no chitchat). Three hours later they were done and my 2,800 square feet driveway was chip sealed. Matt’s son Jim was there to provide a written receipt and collect payment. Not being familiar with a chip seal driveway, I asked him to fill up one of my 5 gallon buckets with chips in case I wanted to touch up an area or two and he was happy to provide this. The new chip seal driveway looks great! I’m writing this review a couple of days after they did the job and we’ve had no issues with using the driveway. It’s spring and severe thunderstorms have rolled through our area in the last several days (including the evening after they did the job) and the rain has not disturbed the driveway at all. The quality of the job seems to pretty good. They were careful to apply the tar just on the driveway and not hit the sidewalk, garden or fence. The edges are nice, clean and tidy. The gravel was mostly laid down at a consistent depth although there are a couple of small spots where I can see the tar and that makes me think it might be a little thin in those spots. They also left behind some bits of tar along side the lawn that they should have picked-up and disposed of. Still, these are pretty minor issues. I used a little of the chips from the bucket to touch up the few spots I thought were a little thin and that fixed them right up. Overall I would rate the quality as very good and the price/responsive as excellent. I would definitely use them again.
